The coaches are new. The programs are refreshed. Soon, FAU and FIU will fight it out the way they did in this year’s football recruiting.

in Sports/Top Headlines by

For the first time in years, it seems, the Miami Hurricanes are happy with their head football coach. Perhaps they will continue to be.

That caused a little wonder, however. Just how are the old guys for the Tampa Bay Rays doing? Are the…

in Sports/Top Headlines by

The Tampa Bay Rays evidently don’t like working late. The Rays lost another extra-inning game Tuesday night, falling 8-7 to the Detroit Tigers in 13 innings.

The Rays held a 5-1 lead in the sixth inning, but immediately gave up a four-run bottom of the sixth to Detroit. The Tigers…

One swing, and the Orioles have a grand time beating the Tampa Bay Rays

in Sports/Top Headlines by

To the Tampa Bay Rays, four runs seems like a mountain. To the Rays, four runs feels like a week’s worth. To the Rays, four runs seems insurmountable. Imagine their feelings, then, when the Orioles scored that many with one swing of the bat Saturday night? Chris Davis hit a 3-2 pitch some 400 feet for a third-inning grand slam, leading Baltimore to a 5-1 victory against the light-hitting Rays, who mustered only five hits. Tampa Bay is now 9-20…
